The History of Afternoon Tea
Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, The 7th Duchess of Bedford, in the early 19th Century. The Duchess would become hungry around four o'clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o'clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner.
The Duchess asked that a tray of tea, bread & butter and cakes to be brought to her room during the late afternoon. This became a frequent request and she began inviting friends to join her.
Eventually, this break for tea became an extremely fashionable social custom in England. During the late 19th Century, upper-class and high society women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea which was usually served in the drawing room between four and five o'clock.
